REBROADCAST: The Effect of Confinement Due to COVID-19 on Seismic Noise in Mexico
KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!

In this rebroadcast, special guest speaker Dr. Xyoli Pérez-Campos discusses effects on seismic noise related to COVID-19 lockdowns in Mexico.

Mexican seismic stations witnessed a reduction in noise level as a result of the lockdown strategies to contain COVID-19. The largest drop was observed in Hermosillo, also the city with the fastest noise level recovery, and a quick increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases. Since June 1, 2020, a traffic-light system modulates the re-opening of economic activities for each state, which is reflected in noise levels. Noise reduction has allowed the identification and perception of smaller earthquakes.

This informative webinar + Q&A is a must-see for anyone interested in how other factors can impact seismic observation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
